Only Now Is: Senryu

ONLY NOW IS

Taking the next step …
Contraction? Or expansion?
… Imagination!

Gifts

GIFTS

All these possessions
He threw them in the river
Unburden others

Nesting Dolls

NESTING DOLLS

Life’s a tragedy
Caught fast within their costumes
The actors expire

Backstage real life breeds
More down to earth deceptions
Still rôles; still acting

24-Hour News (29b)

24-HOUR NEWS

Handpickled
Distortions meant to
Convince us
We know best
Tapered, tampered, distempered
Not breaking, broken

Keeping In Touch

KEEPING IN TOUCH

“HI! Love you. Kiss kiss.
Must dash.” And scrolls down to the
Next ten second bite.

Staying Alert

1: ALERT

“Come quickly,” mummy.
“There’s a man at the door with
a bill.” Her reply?

2: DISTRACTED

“Don’t be silly, son.
It’s probably just a duck
who’s wearing a hat.”

Oh Media Mania’s Puny Hum

OH MEDIA MANIA’S PUNY HUM

Illusion within
Illusion masquerading
As reality
I interrupt this broadcast
With breaking news of silence

The Merry Dance

THE MERRY DANCE

Ah yes … Mindfulness
And her wayward twin sister
Distraction … Ah yes

Lost (A Four By Six)

LOST

Another afternoon
Mislaid and forgotten
Let’s go to the pictures
Enjoy a phantasy

Dread Affliction

DREAD AFFLICTION

Overthinking
One terrible affliction
Thinking gets enmeshed
Goes blind lost in emotion
Pure intuition cut adrift
Time to let go

Return
Remain
Release
Relax

Sit still as silence
Thirty minutes and reboot
Duly calm readdress the issue
If caterwauling chitcat reinvades
Stop – take ten deep breaths
Ten – one after the other

Give yourself a hug or two
Tap your baton a time or two
For you are conductor here
Call the players to order
And issue your order
Da capo – Da capo

Return
Remain
Release
Relax

And et cetera
